Gretchen Rubin has found that getting control of our stuff makes us feel more in control of our lives. By getting rid of things we don't use, don't need, or don't love, we free our minds (and our shelves) for what we truly value. With a sense of fun, and a clear idea of what's realistic for most people, Gretchen Rubin suggests dozens of manageable steps for creating a more serene, orderly environment - one that helps us to create the lives we want.

It was great, what there was of it. I expected more than 2 1/2 hours. Disappointed in that alone.

Alas some didn’t hold my attention as much as I hoped. I’ll be listening again to make notes on those brilliant points!

Was hopeful but should have known when I had to move speed to 1.25 to tolerate listening that it was going to be a problem. Then I had to listen to the end twice believing I had to have missed something. This isn’t a trilogy,?its the middle of a book. Thanks but no thanks. I’ll remember to read reviews next time.

I really liked the storyline but thought it went further than I wanted for light reading. I don’t consider myself prudish but when I’m listening to a book and want to carry my Bluetooth speaker outside to listen to while I’m doing a chore of some sorts, I’d rather not entertain her neighbors with the extra steam from the book. It added nothing to the storyline IMO.
